rented love

I am back from my Bachelorette Party in Dallas, and finally caught up to the rest of the world. 
For the special occasion of celebrating with my girlfriends, I fell to my new "old standby", Rent the Runway. What better way to pop champagne and sing "All the Single Ladies" than in a rented dress. But for serious, this could not be any easier.
Pick out a designer dress (from 100s!), place an order (for a fraction of retail, up to 90% off), get a dress (and an extra size just in case) overnighted to wherever you may be, keep it for 4 days, then send it back in the pre-paid mailer. They take care of laundering it, and insurance covers any major damages. For realz
Over my past 2 years of being a member, this is my 5th time renting a dress. I have loved everything I've worn so far, but this dress might be my new favorite. The Sachin + Babi "Petal to the Metal" Dress was perfect for our ladies' night out! I danced worry free all night, and had money in my pocket for shots for the bride-to-be. I love being smart and renting instead of purchasing, but still getting decked out in designer duds!

Thinking fabulous thoughts of the rich and famous!

And when you are ready to change your life, sign up here!
P.S. I typically hold out for a great coupon (20% off and free shipping!) and rent multiple dresses at once to take advantage of the rent one dress, get the second look for $25 deal... So any of the prices you see on the site are more than what I pay ;)


  1. Yes, in all 5 of my Rent the Runway experiences, it has totally been worth it! xx

  2. What a fun dress! I've always wondered if rent the runway was worth it.. Guess it is!
